{sedona} chapel in the rocks

April 12, 2011

Sedona’s red rocks might be some of the most beautiful in all the world and I’ll venture to argue that Chapel of the Holy Cross is the place architecture and those beautiful rocks truly become one. Surprisingly, Marguerite Bruswig Staude first found the inspiration for this magnificent building on a trip to New York City while observing the Empire State Building. After searching far and wide, she found Sedona and decided that was where this modern Catholic church just had to be built. Marguerite Bruswig Staude was a student of the infamous Frank Lloyd Wright, but for sure gave herself a name with this stunning architectural miracle.

I think the most stunning parts of the whole building are the windows. The dark, dark shades reflect the red rocks all around in such a way that they’re even more beautiful than if you turned around and looked at them in person.

A holy red rock adventure:
